Alyssa Milano joins nonprofit Spread the Vote

Alyssa Milano is expanding her political activism with a push into voters’ rights.

The “Insatiable” actress is teaming up with a nonprofit called Spread the Vote, joining as a board member. The organization bills itself as a nonpartisan group that helps “members of our communities to be heard at the polls: with IDs, registration, education, and turnout.”

“The work Spread The Vote is doing is monumental in changing the lives of thousands,” Milano told ITK in a statement.

“I look forward to furthering their mission of getting people from all walks of life IDs and helping them vote so they can have a voice in choosing the leaders and policies that affect us all,” she said.

The 46-year-old “Charmed” and “Who’s the Boss?” star, one of the “Me Too” movement’s most prominent activists, has become a familiar face in Washington as she’s advocated for women’s equality issues and against sexual harassment.

“Alyssa is an incredible activist who had been working towards equality and justice across the country for years,” Calvin tells ITK.

“I am so excited to learn from a woman who has learned to use her voice so powerfully,” she added.

In January, Milano testified at a shadow hearing at the Rayburn House Office building in support of ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment. Last year, she joined a rally in D.C. to protest the confirmation of Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.
